DRAWING – unfolding potential

I am interested in drawing as a generative and speculative act. I want to interrogate where a drawing is going. Ideas of continuum, rotation, progression and motion give drawing a future oriented trajectory. By following some internal impetus of growth or movement, can a drawing be autonomous, be infinite?

OBSERVATIONS – training in attentiveness

As contemporary culture accelerates, peripheral vision is narrowing and attention spans are diminishing. As a quiet resistance to a rapid image culture, ‘Observations’ was a body of work made over a eight-year period that investigated a slow process of attunement. Paintings and prints documented transient events – studies included dusk light, ground shadows, sunlight movements and atmospheric distance. Exploring  sensitive magnitudes of human perception, these works recorded an intimate relation to distant things.
